While a judicial decision should be based on the facts of a case and the application of law, the human brain also plays a role in the outcome of a judge's decision.  Without regard to logic, facts, or the law, a judge can fall into cognitive traps wholly due to the human brain's construction.
During this webcast, judges will examine the latest research on neuroscience and decision making.  Judges will be able to apply techniques to ensure fairness when making decisions, and minimize the impact of automatic mental processes.  By identifying the role of neuroscience in decision making, judges are empowered to enhance public trust and confidence in the judicial branch.
Kimberly Papillion, JD, Judicial Educator, Administrative Office of the Courts for California will be presenting.

Please note that this is not a JEC program; however, we have purchased an annual subscription from NJC so that New Mexico judges may attend free of charge.  Attendance at these webcasts is by email invitation only.  Each quarter an email is sent out with instructions on how to register free of charge for the upcoming webcast.
